Why is sustainability important?
As human beings, we always have interesting ideas in mind which we oftentimes put into actions. Ãƒ’šÃ‚ We are too excited to plan, too enthusiastic to execute, but when we encounter challenges, our energy just die down. Ãƒ’šÃ‚ We could not anymore finish what we have started. Ãƒ’šÃ‚ This is why sustainability is important.
To be sustainable means the capacity to be maintained. Ãƒ’šÃ‚ A project will never be successful if it can’t be maintained, if the goal is not met. Sustainability is a long and tedious process. Ãƒ’šÃ‚ It requires proper planning, enough manpower and resources, and strategic time management.
Sustainability is important in a lot of things. Ãƒ’šÃ‚ In economics, people won’t survive if the government could not sustain the finances of the country. Ãƒ’šÃ‚ Even within our family, we need to sustain our basic needs such as food, clothing, and shelter for us to exist longer. In every organization, sustainability is also important to be able to take actions of what we have started, to be able to deliver the mission well, and to reach the vision that was just once a dream.
In life science, sustainability is very much important for survival. Ãƒ’šÃ‚ Take for example the life we have. Ãƒ’šÃ‚ If we don’t know how to take care of our health, we would just perish. We need to sustain a healthy lifestyle in order to enjoy God’s creation. Ãƒ’šÃ‚ In nature, we need to sustain what has been given to us such as the trees, the animals, the clean water, the fresh air. Ãƒ’šÃ‚ We could not just use them up and do nothing. Ãƒ’šÃ‚ If we make use of nature, we need to replace them to avoid shortage and extinction.
Sustainability is a cycle. Ãƒ’šÃ‚ It helps us understand the connection among the humanity, environment, and economy. Ãƒ’šÃ‚ Its role is too important that without it, we could no longer survive and live.
